Wishing you all the best for the future

Hi Bloggers.

I'm heading up to Preston this afternoon as I'm demoing at Inspirations all day tomorrow. Really looking forward to it as Sheila from DoCrafts will be there and also the lovely Nigel May who has promised to do some crafting with me. If you're in the area, do pop by and say hello.

Here's today's card from Sunday's shows.

For the background, I spritzed some Coconut White Card with Cosmic Shimmer Angel Peal Mister. I dried it with my heat tool and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Passion Embossing Powder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and then edged it with Shaded Lilac Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the 2 heart images from the Creative Expressions Wonderful Beginnings Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Arctic Lake Lustre Embossing Powder. I cut them out with scissors.

I cut 2 circle motifs out using Spellbinders Asian Accents and inked through the die with Shaded Lilac.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set again using Perfect Medium and embossed with Arctic Lake Lustre. I cut it out using Spellbinders Matting Basics B and inked through the die with Shaded Lilac.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Pearl Swirls, some White 8mm & 5mm Pearls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. Good morning Julia, I prefer this colour scheme to the black version, it's much softer and appeals to me more. They are clever designs fitted into those hearts, aren't they.
